Wrapping up 2013

“The funds provided by Tracy’s Kids have made a significant difference in the lives of so many of the families who have a child or teen with cancer and within the cancer community as a whole.”

TK-DC MONUMENTS 2014 ART SHOW

2013 was another successful year for Tracy’s Kids and we celebrated with our annual art show at the Carroll Square Gallery in downtown Washington, DC, which runs through January 24.

Below are some examples of the art being showcased, as well as information about the gallery. If you have the opportunity to stop by, we promise you won’t be disappointed.

This year we were inspired by our friend and fellow artist Kari Kant and her use of the American Flag in her pieces. We took this idea and created our own American flags earlier in the year that were showcased at her June art opening. The kids continued this idea and expanded to creating more art based around the Washington, DC landscape, and created a number of pieces with this theme. These will also be shown at our ninth annual And the Winner Is fundraiser on February 25, 2014.

Birthday Celebration!

Last week a new leukemia patient came in to clinic with her mom. She has been kind of shy since diagnosis but we’ve gradually gotten her involved at the art table. She was excited to put  a little sculpture  in our show at Carroll Square.

The tiny red bird’s nest on the right side of the podium is by the birthday girl!

She  just turned five on Tuesday, so she was all excited about her birthday. Her mom prompted her to tell me what they had done to celebrate–“I took my family to see the art show!” She was grinning from ear to ear.

Cool.
